I'm a 4th generation artist, self-taught and passionate about what I do. I love a creative challenge. Animals are a favorite subject, either realistic or whimsical. My style is painterly, often described as contemplative, dreamy, serene and soothing . I feel I have a lot to offer the children's book genre as well as paper product design, greeting cards and stationary or commisioned paintings. I'm a good idea person and very easy to work with. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my portfolio!
